Aidan Saari owned Bemidji’s best finish of the day, placing first in 1-meter diving at 195.10. Braden Olsen followed suit in second with a 187.20 score.
The Lumberjacks placed fourth with 387.5 points, trailing Melrose/Sauk Centre (558), Grand Forks (422.5) and Moorhead (403.5).
BHS will be back in the pool at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, for a dual at Thief River Falls.
